When Do You Need an Adult ADHD Psychiatrist?
Is it ADHD or are you simply an energetic or Type A person? It’s not always easy for the average person to diagnose attention deficient disorder. As with any disorder — psychological, emotional, or physical — it’s important to determine if it is serious or not when getting help. If your life is negatively affected by it, it’s time to seek counsel. Not all who have ADHD as an adult had recognizable symptoms as a child.

Some Causes of ADHD in Adults
You’re not simply “hyperactive” or disorganized. There’s much more to ADHD than can be observed. In fact, the disorder involves brain chemistry differences and genetics. Studies indicate that genes may play a role in ADHD and ADD. Even though environment and developmental problems may contribute to the disorder, they are not the only cause. To that end, we treat ADHD holistically to address the issue. By prescribing various medications, we alleviate the symptoms and bring life back into focus. From that point, counseling helps our patients develop proper coping, cognitive, and behavioral skills that they can use in their daily lives.
